"Sometimes, when you're in an overly silly mood, only one thing will do: Pauly Shore. That's why I love Bio-Dome. It's just silly all over. The concept is utterly ridiculous...2 stoner community college kids mistake an enclosed environment, the bio-dome, for a mall and get trapped inside for a year. If you enjoy Pauly Shore in all his silly glory, you'll have a lot of fun with Bio-Dome. Don't take it too seriously...just watch and laugh. For those who enjoyed Encino Man and Son-in-Law, Bio-Dome will do the trick. An amusing way to spend an hour and a half."
Umm... what the hell was that???

"Possibly the stupidest (not good stupid, but bad stupid) movie I have ever seen. I turned off the vcr in the middle of it -- it was so bad. The equivalent entertainment would be to go to the bathroom and fart my brains out... I think that would actually be funnier then that peace of garbage was. Total waste of money and time. WARNING: DO NOT BUY OR RENT THIS MOVIE! If you're looking for a dumb movie that will make you laugh, trust me, this is NOT it!!!"

""Ahoy Noah, Your looking kind o' grizzly..."
"No, I am god..."
This is obviously an important flick, with over 100 reviews on Amazon. Most rave, a few bash -- almost none in the middle. It could be mindset, maybe political bent. But I feel sorry for those who cannot appreciate this little gem, an outrageously hilarious, quotable romp with a message! Yes, maybe the message is mixed with fart and stoner humor, but Bud and Doyle (the Frog and the Squirrel) who "own this place, total!" really grow and realize that they have "made Vasquez lake" and "have to fix it". They are not some "shaved down pool Nazis" they want to "free the Mahi-mahi, if you will..." and they go from guys who "can't cork it (negatory)" wanting to "pee in your Jurassic mall" to rejects even within the closed world of the Biodome: "I'm going to start my own dome, like a dome within a dome... so don't come knocking on my door!..." To formulating a plan to fight back after Doyle single-handedly and in one (mouth filled with Pizza) sentence "Don't give me any of that bourgeois/smourgeois -- gimme the drink, gimme the drink..." wins back his Photocopier-employed friend to make the flyers: "Have a beer with a deer..."
A better environmental piece than even Koyaanisqatsi. Almost as much fun as "Dancing. Naked. Want us to take of all our clothes, feed us some weird punch..."
I disagree that it's not right for kids. I think they should show it in the schools. (Current music is much more suggestive.) And my kids have watched it (with supervision) since an early age. We quote it all the time to each other a crack up. It is an endless source of family humor. we have watched it dozens of times together. Just a really great flick all around. I would give it six stars if I could.
So all I can say to the inimitable Pauly Shore is "Thank you Naomi!""
